HSA State Championships

If you didn't know Devin and Nicole surfed in the HSA State Championships at Ala Moana Bowls this past week.The conditions at Bowls couldn't have been any better... 2 -3 feet with occasional 4 footer rolling through.

Nicole surfed in the Girls 12-13 division. She surfed in one of the first heats of the day. The waves wasn't in perfect form yet, but there was some good ones to be had. Nicole surfed really well in her heat and was able to advance to the semi final. In the semi's, she was once again surfing really well but didn't get that one wave she needed to advance to the finals. Over all she was stoke with her finish. But she said it would have been better to advance to finals. That's ok... you did great and especially when your having fun out there!!

Devin surfed in the Menehune shortboard division which is the 11 and under. He advanced through four rounds and won a couple of heats in the process before the semi final. In semi final Devin ended up posting his highest score of the event, a 9.5! He was stoke with his score, but he was even happier with the announcement that he had won the semi. Then it was time for the final. The final was stacked with the best surfers from a cross the state and some great waves to be surfed. So the stage was set. All the kids surfed really well and it was just a matter of who was going to get the best wave. Devin had some great medium size waves but not the one he needed in the end. He just missed a solid four foot wave that could have possibly been a very high scoring wave. So he settle for the next wave that didn't open up for him in the closing seconds. After surfing four rounds and a semi final,  Devin ended up placing "3rd" in the HSA State Championships final!!!
